Create an itinerary including Playa Norte
The tropical paradise of Playa Norte occupies a scenic spot on an island once considered the sanctuary of Mayan goddess Ix Chel. Shaded by tall palm trees, the soft white sand provides enough space for playing sports or hosting a party, while the turquoise sea remains as calm as a lake. Snorkel or swim in the inviting shallow water, which teems with fish and other colorful marine creatures. Beach bars provide refreshments and rent out lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Several larger eateries along the water will give you access to changing facilities with any purchase of food and drink.

  • This truly is one of the nicest beaches we have every been to. Very tranquil in some areas and not as much in other areas, depends on what you want. People in Cancun get excursions just to come here.....  more

  • Most beautiful playa I’ve been in my entire life! Beautiful sand and clear water. You can walk very far without walking on seaweed and rocks. We’ve also brought our glasses to look underwater and saw many many fishes! Such a nice time.
  • Playa Norte is one of Mexico's most beautiful beaches and one of favorites!! It's crystal clear, beautiful turquoise water as far as the eye can see. Lots of fish to see if you like to snorkel. All kinds of restaurants, bars and shops within walking distance. Can't wait to return!
